international_awardBring hope to the children’. This is the slogan for the solidarity campaign that will take place in the secondary department from the 22nd November. Christmas time is approaching, and we believe that every child has the right to receive a gift at this time of year, however humble it may be. Presently, we find ourselves in a deep economic recession, but we consider this is not reason enough to make children lose their hope. Therefore, we are organizing the collection of imperishable food and non-war related toys in order to collaborate with the Christmas charity campaign which is run by ‘Casa de Galicia’. 

IMG_0493_-_copiaLast 15 November P6 went through and unforgettable literary experience. After reading this term "El misterio de las afortunadas" by Juan Carlos Saavedra, our students followed the character's footsteps and "lived" with the author the chapters already read in school. We walked around Vegueta (Los Balcones, The Pilar Square , the Cathedral, Santa Ana Square...) where the plot of the novel takes place, until we reached Casa Colón. On top of all this, Juan Carlos chatted with the students who asked him interesting questions about the book

On Friday K3, P1,P2 and P3 went to Los Olivos.Today we went on one of the best excursions ever.  At the ecological farm we loved walking through the very clean installations and learning about olives. Our guide showed us the olive trees first.  When they are ripe they are collected.  After she showed us how the olives are put into large barrels to improve their taste. The olives are used to eat whole and also for making oil.   When we sat down to lunch they treated us to plates of very yummy ecological olives. While walking around we saw many different types of birds.  She allowed us to hold and pet the baby chicks, bunnies and also play with the cutest dog!  Towards the end of our trip we saw their cows and calves.  They milked the cows and gave a sample to taste!  It was delicious.A great day!
